Katharina’s jewellery uses natural light reflection in custom-cut gemstones and visually references the angled lines found in the architecture of cityscapes. Every piece is preceded by a thorough design process and handcrafted with great attention to detail, reflecting inspiration from the architecture of cityscapes. All materials are sourced sustainably and ethically from trusted suppliers in Germany and each gemstone is handpicked. Katharina prefers using traditional tools to create jewellery, which reveals each stone’s original beauty.
